I started this earlier today, but I had to erase everything because it sounded like one big "pity party". So I will try again.
Tomorrow I celebrate 2 years after De Vinci. 2 years, 2 months, and seven days since I learned I had PC. What a ride. How one's life can change. I am so blessed to have been "prepared" for all of this. God gave me everything I needed to get me through. The best wife in the world, friends, church, and a whole bunch of love from people that I don't even know. He also led me to all of you. What a blessing.
So tomorrow, I will kiss my wife, go to work, say a prayer, and get on with the journey. No single malt, but maybe some Tennesse Tea in the evening. Just to celebrate. I thought, earlier today I was going to be real down about this, but I just feel like I've gotta a whole lotta living, lovin', and laughin' left to do. I think I will buy some green banana's. (old joke)
I will celebrate because I am still here and still fighting. I love a good fight. We all have our journey, right Bill? It is best taken with friends. I am so glad you are on this little trek with me.
So to everyone out there that is still fighting and to those who are just now starting the fight, I say............................WAR EAGLE.
Love and blessings to all.
